He was selected as Chiropractor of the Year in 1993 for his work on the peer review board.

Dr. McCracken married Tina in 1971 and they have four children; Megan, Brian, Colleen and Joe. The children are grown and have moved out of the house. Now he and his wife are enjoying grandchildren. While the kids were at home, they received chiropractic care and never any shots or medications; just plain chiropractic. If the chiropractic approach to raising healthy kids is of interest to you, be sure to talk with Dr. McCracken. He likes to play golf, snow ski and go on bike rides with his wife on Lincoln’s many bike trails.
Remember, our bodies were designed to be moving, when things stop moving there is a problem. So chiropractic first, medications second and surgery last. A second opinion with Dr. McCracken could save you from a lifetime of pain and suffering. The saying in our office is ” Move Easily, Eat Naturally & Think Positively!
